To coincide with the glorious weather gracing the UK, we’ve had a strong start to the summer of sport. There is always a real feeling of excitement as the sporting calendar ticks of those grand dates: Paris Roubaix, the London Marathon, the final run of the ski season… Here’s what we’ve been enjoying and what’s hot for the month of May.
London Marathon presents: Eliud
Each year the running world turns to face our home city with great expectations for one event: the London Marathon. It’s a special day for everyone from the elite to the first-timers, and at the very front of the pack was a remarkable performance from Eliud Kipchoge.
Stand up for Winter
SportPursuit HQ welcomed Protect Our Winters UK to the SportPursuit office this month to teach us more about climate change, and what we can do to help. Everyone who is active in the great outdoors knows how important it is to protect these amazing natural playgrounds, so we look forward to spreading the message of POW UK and helping more people make a positive difference.
Give it a tri!
If you’ve been following Team #MyPursuit you know we’re no strangers to taking on a big challenge. But it’s not all about pbs and pushing for a podium spot, we also love trying new things and stretching our capabilities. That’s why two of the team are trying their first triathlons this year!
Luckily we’ve got the perfect test ground for them – the SportPursuit Slateman Triathlon is this year’s edition of the iconic race from Always Aim High Events. A choice of race lengths, a friendly and welcoming atmosphere, and the stunning backdrop of rugged Snowdonia make this a special event. There are still a few places left, and if it’s your first time again then you can get kitted out with our tips on the 10 essentials for your first triathlon!
Garmin fēnix 5
Time and again the one item that comes out top for training kit from our #MyPursuit athletes is a reliable way of tracking your performance, progress and recovery. The fēnix 5 from Garmin brings you a multisport GPS watch with wrist-based heart rate, and covers everything you’ll need to take your performance to the next level in one neat package.
